Guardiola Reacts To City's 100-Pts EPL Landmark

Guardiola Reacts To City's 100-Pts EPL Landmark

Pep Guardiola's record-breaking side looked like missing out on an historic win on the south coast before substitute Jesus lobbed home to secure a 1-0 success with nearly the final kick of the game. All season we didn't surrender, we never gave up and tried until the end.

As well as winning the most points by an English top-flight side in a single campaign, City's 32nd win broke Tottenham's 57-year-old record for victories in a single top-flight season, BBC reports.

Pep Guardiola reacted to the team's 106th league goal of the season by leaping out of his seat in the dugout and punching the air.

"I think [Virgil] van Dijk has helped them a lot to be more consistent in the defensive department, especially in the box, and (there is) the quality up front and the quality in the way they play".

"Our rhythm was not so high but during the game we were focused and at the end the excellent pass from Kevin and unbelievable finish from Gabriel made the difference to achieve that". Another potentially unsurpassable feat is the amount of league games they've won.




Ederson will surely now be looking to add to his medal collection by helping City retain the Premier League, with next season's Champions League trophy also on his mind.

Despite having a typically large share of the possession in the first half, City struggled to break down Southampton's organised defence and rarely troubled Alex McCarthy in goal. Numbers are numbers, but the way we played. A corner from Dusan Tadic was met by Wesley Hoedt who saw his header come back off the upright and away for a goal kick.

The champions' first meaningful chance of the game came in the 61st minute when Raheem Sterling thumped the ball against the post after it fell to him kindly from a deflected Kevin De Bruyne cross.

Swansea City were relegated from the EPL after suffering a 1-2 defeat at home against Stoke City.

City are due to celebrate their title success with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester today.
